340,000 L.A. County Ballots Left to be Processed
The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk is continuing to process ballots not counted election night, announcing in its bi-weekly update that 340,684 still remain.
The new count gave a slight jump -- 0.32 percent -- for Measure J, which now stands at 65.06 percent. If successful, it would take an already-existing sales tax dedicated to transportation funding set to expire in 2039 and extend it for another 30 years. 66.67 percent, a two-thirds vote, is needed for it to pass. Metro, which manages the sales tax money, has already concluded that Measure J has lost, but County Clerk Dean Logan has deemed it as a "close contest."
The next ballot update will be Tuesday.
